Aloha and welcome to our AFSP Hawai'i Chapter website. Our team is made up of compassionate and dedicated individuals from O'ahu, Kauai, Maui, and Hawai'i. We invite you to join us and learn how you can start serving your community today.
About the AFSP Hawai'i Chapter
The grassroots work we do focuses on eliminating the loss of life from suicide by delivering innovative prevention programs, educating the public about risk factors and warning signs, raising funds for suicide research and programs, and reaching out to individuals who have lost someone to suicide.
As a part of AFSP's growing nationwide network of chapters, we bring together people from all backgrounds who want to prevent suicide in our communities. Families and friends who have lost someone to suicide, vulnerable individuals, mental health professionals, clergy, educators, students, community/business leaders, and many others energize our chapter. Join us to help spread aloha and to reach out to those in need.
